There are many ways to give to the University of Nebraska and its affiliates. You can make a gift through your estate plan without giving any money right now or you can make a gift that will return an income to you, such as an annuity.
All of these gifts are referred to as planned gifts because you are planning to provide the gift at a later date, and all of these gifts grant you membership in the Burnett Society.
Regardless of the method you choose, you may designate your gift to the area that matters the most to you and leave a legacy.
There are many ways to give to the university and its affiliates through the University of Nebraska Foundation.
You can give tangible personal property or commercial, residential or agricultural real estate. You can deed property, such as your home, as well as give securities — stocks, bonds or mutual funds. Another giving option is a retained life estate.

Women Investing in Nebraska is an initiative focused on collective giving by women who want to impact the state through philanthropy.
When you make a gift to the University of Nebraska Foundation you can trust that it will be used in the way in which it was intended. That’s a promise we’ve kept with our donors since our organization was founded in 1936.
